Team Outlook and Scouting Report

LONG TERM OUTLOOK: TRENDING UP

The Athletics are World Series contenders and their chances are clearly on the rise. In our pre-season forecast they had a 2% chance of winning it all. On 5/17 they had a 0.1% chance before increasing to 5.2% on 7/18. From the start of the season to now their chances are up significantly to 4.3%. They have a 16.9% chance of winning their division. They are projected to finish #5 in the conference and have a 69% chance of making the playoffs. The odds still give them a sliver of hope to win the AL at 3.8% (25/1 odds) and a 2% chance of winning it all (50/1). In simulations they make the World Series 9.3% of the time.

The most likely scenario over the next 10 games is a record of 6-4 (25% chance). Their chances of winning 8 or more are 11%. At #5 in the league, they are behind the Indians by half a point. With a -0.69 disadvantage in projected wins over their next 10 games they may find themselves further behind in the league. They are ahead of the Rays by half a point. In the short-term, we do predict much of a change in the gap between them and the Rays. Their projected wins (5.63) over the next 10 games is virtually the same so we do not expect a change in standings in the near term.
